What you'll do

We will meet at our camp in Lagos 15 minutes before departure for the surf lesson. From here our surf vans will take you to one of our surf spots for your lesson. The drive takes about 40 minutes. Once you arrive to the beach our driver will give you a surf board and you will follow him to the place where you meet your instructor. Your lesson will start with a proper warm up and little theory lecutre. You will learn how to position your body in the water, how to hold the board and pop up on the board. On your first lessons you will stay in shallow water, close to the shore and you will learn how to catch "white water". After your 2 hr lesson you will come back to the beach for delicious lunch picnic - fresh sandwitches, fruits and sweets. After your lunch and some time to chill on the beach we will pack and return to the car and drive back to Lagos. The whole trip for surf lesson takes about 5 hours.

I am a passionate surfer and traveller, working since 7 years as a head manager of one of the oldest surf camps and watersport schools in the area - Algarve Watersport. Together with a group of friends we teach watersports such as surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing , SUP and wake. I love the ocean and I try to spend as much time in the water as I can! I am also an expert when it comes to the Western Algarve, knowing almost all the surf spots and the best places to go and see.

Geile Erfahrung, ausnahmsweise sogar an der Südküste am Strand bei Lagos (Praia São Roque)! Matteo unser Lehrer hat als allererstes die Sicherheit vorangestellt und uns dann Theorieunterricht gegeben. Danach durften wir es in der Praxis ausprobieren bis der nächste Schritt ansteht. Ich habe das Gefühl die Basics verstanden zu haben & jetzt gehts an Üben 😁

Es war cool! Ich wurde gut angeleitet. Allerdings stand ein Snack in der Beschreibung, den es nicht gab. Sonst empfehlenswert.

In the annonce it will be the mention about lunch, but the lunch didn’t take place. For me it is ok, but for the future it is import I think to change the description of the offer. It is important to correspond to what you promise.

This is my first surfing experience with friends. Due to the storm and rain, our trip was once delayed or even cancelled due to bad conditions. Becca took the initiative to exchange views with us, and we decided to wait for the right time to go surfing. Fortunately, the conditions improved a little later. Although it was very cold, one of our friends cancelled surfing, but I and the other friend enjoyed the experience very much. The coaches guided our two beginners very seriously. Thank you very much for the unique experience.
